Some healthy snacks for kids

March is National Nutrition Month, a nutrition education and information campaign created by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

The group offers ideas for healthy snacks for kids including:

Parfait: Layer vanilla or plain low-fat yogurt with fruit and dried cereal.

Smoothie: Blend low-fat milk, frozen strawberries and a banana for 30 seconds for a delicious smoothie.

Frozen Treats: Mix equal amounts of fat-free plain or flavored yogurt with 100 percent fruit juice, then pour into paper cups and freeze for a tasty treat.

Quesadilla: Sprinkle shredded cheese over a corn or whole wheat tortilla; fold in half and microwave for 20 seconds. Top with salsa.

Pita: Stuff a whole-grain pita pocket with ricotta cheese and Granny Smith apple slices. Add a dash of cinnamon.
